Jogging has long been forgotten from my daily routine.  But as a way of tweaking my predictable life of black and white,  I had made a brave step towards redefining the physical aspects of my being.  I am completely aware that I am approaching fast to middle life that  I should be a little responsible for bringing back myself in top shape.

Today, in the chilly dawn, I have dragged this sluggish couch potato into subjection. Over and over, I have conditioned myself to afford this judicious exercise to liberate some of my disproportionate excesses.  Block by block, I jog the distances realizing that I am taking myself into a new-found liberty from this monotonous helter skelter of my existence.

I need to break the chain of my unhealthy habits.  I need to revamp my old ideas in taking care of my body and mind. I need to break free from my indecision to take necessary steps in rejuvenating my physical adaptability.

These were the mantras that propelled me to be confident once more and take control.  Avoiding the mental overload of the continuous workmill.  And besides, I am not doing this for impression. But it is rather, a test to gauge how far I can go to defy the programmed patterns of my thinking.

I know that it seems too late for me to consider this but I need to pull this off successfully.  If others can do it, so why can’t I? I will not be so contented about thinking that what I wanted is to go an extra mile.  An extra push. Since there is no harm in trying.

I never intended to be a Mr. Universe. But for a fact,  I only wanted to be here for the longest possible time to flex more of my mental aptitude and be capable of having the energy to live another day.  My health is my wealth.  That I think, is a  justification why I should be more pro-active about living healthy.

That means more time to appreciate the beautiful sensibilities of nature along the way.  That means more opportunity to bond with people and create lasting friendships.  That means freedom to reinvigorate my seemingly dull life.

You can almost list down all the optimism I am having for the moment. But I am enjoying every bit of it.  A new perspective. A new zest.  A new quest. For something that is worth trying.  And hopefully I could emerge as a better person in a whole new light.
